Presidential lawyer and former Big Apple Mayor Rudy Giuliani confirmed over the weekend that the special counsel’s probe into Russian-Trump collusion will wrap up by September 1st, adding Mueller’s team sent him an “official timeline” of the investigation.
Giuliani received the “timeline” less than two weeks ago, saying Robert Mueller will finish the probe by September 1st to ensure its findings have a minimal impact on the highly-contested 2018 midterm elections.
“You don’t want another repeat of the 2016 election where you get contrary reports at the end and you don’t know how it affected the election,” he told the New York Times.
“We want the concentration of this to be on Comey versus the president’s credibility, and I think we win that and people get that,” he added.
The President slammed Mueller’s never-ending probe late last week, calling the never-ending investigation a “witch hunt” as it entered its second year.

MUELLER MADNESS: Charged Company Says Mueller Out to ‘Indict ANY Russian’
Attorneys for a Russian company indicted for “meddling” in the 2016 presidential election slammed the special counsel’s ongoing probe Monday; saying Robert Mueller’s team was out to “indict a Russian… any Russian.”
Lawyers for Concord Management and Consulting LLC slammed Mueller’s “political” witch hunt; claiming their clients had nothing to do with interfering in the 2016 race for the White House for either political candidate.
“The reason is obvious, and political to justify his own existence the Special Counsel has to indict a Russian — any Russian,” the lawyers wrote.
The attorneys called on US District Judge Dabney Friedrich to overturn the indictment, saying “With that information, the court can determine whether those instructions could support a motion to dismiss the facially invalid count one of the indictment.”
“The instant indictment fails to allege that the defendant knew it was acting unlawfully and that it intended to violate the underlying regulatory offenses,” the court paperwork said.
MUELLER MADNESS: Federal Judge Says Mueller ‘LYING’ to Target Trump
A federal judge issued a stark rebuke to the special counsel’s office Friday, accusing Mueller’s team of “lying” to expand its investigation into Russian collusion in an attempt to deliberately target the President.
According to Fox News, US District Judge T.S. Ellis lashed-out at Mueller’s office during a hearing for former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort; saying the special counsel was using Manafort to dig-up information on the President.
“You don’t really care about Mr. Manafort,” said the judge. “You really care about what information Mr. Manafort can give you to lead you to Mr. Trump and an impeachment, or whatever.”
Ellis then demanded the team release the “scope memo,” a document outlining the initial “scope” of the investigation after the appointment of Robert Mueller to lead the probe into Russian collusion.
“We don’t want anyone with unfettered power,” he added
“He summed up the argument of the Special Counsel’s Office as, “We said this was what [the] investigation was about, but we are not bound by it and we were lying,’” writes Fox.
